I don’t surrender my fall weekends easily.
John’s 50th class reunion
A non gardening weekend.
586 graduates in the College High Class of ’67
13 National Merit Scholar Finalist.
And a fun group of people, too.
So with little to report
From the garden.
I’ll just leave you with this
Mystery to solve.
We found this suspended in the Mandavilla
Just before we left on Friday.
It’s still here this evening.
It’s not attached,
It’s just hanging ,
In the midst of a web
Connected to the plant.
I’ve been observing nature
Up close for a very long time.
This is completely new to me.
Anyone know what’s about to hatch
Right outside my back door?
“He who finds a thought that lets us a little deeper into the eternal mystery of nature has been granted great peace.”
This morning’s sermon was about miracles.
A reminder of those familiar Bible stories
And a challenge to think about miracles
In life today.
For gardeners this is not really a challenge.
We spend our time observing nature
Digging in the dirt
(Sorry Daddy – soil)
And watching what are for me
Who among us can turn this
Plant a seed or plant
and you end up with this…
It can’t possibly be what we do.
I for one, can’t even imagine how this happens
Yet it does.
Season after season.
Year after year.
Now there are weeds along the way.
This particular season it seems to be
Crab grass in my garden
And there are years when
Things don’t go as we hope and plan.
For instance it’s another year of limited hydrangea blooms.
But all in all
The miracles are there
We just have to stop
And open ourselves to see them
